Choosing the Best Derma Roller for Your Skin
The market is flooded with at-home microneedling options promising ease of use, unbelievable results and a painless experience you’ll want to revisit night after night. While we can’t go with you and slap your hand away from investing thousands of dollars on tech devices that may or may not work, we can give you all the deets up front on what makes GloPRO® the only patented, most awarded and trusted at-home microneedler and where it ranks in the sea of options (hint: It’s #1). But just like any good gf, we’d never deny you some window shopping, so let’s cross our “t’s” before you decide:
Choose Quality Over Thriftiness
With so many derma roller options on the market, it can be overwhelming. If you’re just starting out, you may be tempted to go for the cheapest one available; if you go this route, approach it with the same expectation you would when purchasing a disposable razor, it’s not a miracle worker. Look for one that is ergonomically friendly, you’ll potentially be holding this device daily, so make sure it’s comfortable. Clinical and surgical grade materials are also a must, these are needles regularly poking your face and body, go for quality. That being said, you don’t need to put $300 down on a 14-karat gold roller (yes, those do exist).
Three-In-One Tool for Skincare
Most available derma rollers have a very similar design- rows of tiny needles that you manually roll across your skin. GloPRO® however, combines three skin-rejuvenating technologies into one convenient tool.
In addition to surgical-grade stainless steel needles, GloPRO® includes two additional features for enhanced skin regeneration: LED red light therapy and pulse stimulation technology, which work in conjunction to activate skin cells, enhance cellular turnover and stimulate the production of fresh structural proteins. As an added bonus and unlike microneedling devices, it’s battery operated, but the tool can be used in the on or off mode. On mode activates the LED and pulse stimulation benefits. These three techniques allow you to rejuvenate your skin tri-fold with no extra downtime.
GloPRO® is the only patented at-home microneedling device. Our founder, Dr. Terry James, is the biochemist behind some world renowned prestige brands and in 2010 he came up with the idea of taking the microneedling procedure home in a painless, easy way. You won’t find another one like it, yup, it’s that simple.
Several clinical trials have proven both the safety and efficacy of microneedling devices. Repeatedly, people who use high-quality tools enjoy greater skin elasticity and smoothness, along with a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, scars and other blemishes. Better than clinical procedures, at-home microneedling requires no down-time with little-to-no side effects (we’re talking some minor skin flushing similar to a post-workout glow because your skin is being stimulated).
Results from a clinical study showed GloPRO® reduced the appearance of nose-to-mouth wrinkles by an average of 30% in just 30 days of use.
In a GloPRO® consumer perception survey:
- 90% felt skin had a renewed glow while using
- 97% agreed skin looked younger after using the GloPRO®
- 100% felt GloPRO® helped stimulate skin’s natural collagen
- 90% considered GloPRO® an alternate to fillers
- 93% saw visible improvement in the overall appearance of skin
90% saw a visible improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- 93% saw an improvement in the evenness of skin tone
- 97% felt the firmness of skin improved
Good for All Skin Types
Many microneedling devices on the market are one-size-fits-all and come equipped with one needle size ignoring our body’s varying skin densities and concerns. With four interchangeable attachment heads of various sizes and needles of different lengths, GloPRO® can be used to treat concerns from cellulite to fine line reduction and sagging around the eye area. If you have a skin concern, there’s a GloPRO® attachment head for it.
Simple and Convenient
With at-home derma rollers, you can work a microneedling session into your busy schedule whenever it’s convenient for you. We recommend microneedling 2-3 times per week during your nightly routine spending 60 seconds per target area. After each treatment, sterilize your roller with isopropyl alcohol and store in a dry place. Attachment heads should be replaced every 3-4 months with regular use to keep microtips at prime efficacy, you wouldn’t use the same razor forever, right?
If you can find an at-home tool that’s won awards and is trusted by editors the world over, even better. We’ve got some praise to back up the hype, check out our recognition here.
